Why do people in Florida incorrectly use racial slurs?

I recently moved to south Florida and am staying in a big house with a bunch of college kids. For whatever reason they all call each other “gooks.” Nobody in that house is even remotely Asian. One day I dropped a plate on the ground and one of the guys laughed and said “you a ****.” I am white. Whats up with this? That’s like calling a black person a cracker. Im not offended I just think it’s a tad bit odd.

    I lived in South Florida for 3 years, and I've lived in various other places around the country and around the world, and I can tell you without hesitation that the inhabitants of Florida are, for the most part, the least intelligent and least sophisticated people I've ever seen. That might explain it.
